Departure time:

We have partnered with the Rotary Club of Wellington to plant 65,000 native trees in the central Wellington Town Belt on Mount Victoria. The aim of this project is to create a greener healthier environment within the city and to show-case to the nation how humans and nature can thrive in the same place.  Outside of the planting season (May-August) we require plenty of help releasing young plants from weeds, mulching, seed collecing and predator control (rats and mice). 

We welcome you to join our friendly team of volunteers, children welcome! This project is on a Saturday and therefore has a start time of 10am (you deserve a sleep in!), finishing around 2pm but if you need to leave early, kei te pai. Register online or email us at 

We provide: an experienced team leader, tools, gloves, health and safety management and training. Free transport available to/from Mount Vic from the Z station on Vivian Street at 9:30 - let us know if you need a ride as seats are limited. If you wish to meet on site, the meeting location will be confirmed via email after you have made your booking. 

What to wear/bring: sturdy boots, long sleeves and pants, a hat/beanie, waterproof jacket, water bottle and food.

So help to grow a forest at the heart of Wellington! This project is in partnership with Rotary Club of Wellington and Wellington City Council. Supported by MPI Billion Trees Fund.
